    Why would you not show us your actual stitching as you work. There were so many times during the video where the camera is focused on you or the end of your sewing machine. I need to see the process.

    The table that you use to cut the fabric out and where can I buy that table I need a table like that to cut my Fabric out on

    Jeanette Berry it’s from Ikea. I’ve recently put it on casters so it’s raised up and easy to move about now too, even better!

    Hello I am in the market for an overlocker. May I ask which brand and model you use and is it user friendly. I’m a quilter and just starting out in garment making so I figured I would start out with user friendly serger lol If you have anything you do not like about your serger or any recommend actions as far as what you would choose if you were getting a new one now since this video is about a year old

    Hi Jacky. I have the Brother 1034D which is an entry level overlocker that is pretty well priced. I have found it excellent and it has certainly served me well for the 4 or 5 years that I've had it. It is a bit loud and clunky, and people who have upgraded from it to say their more expensive machines run more smoothly, and quietly. But, I'm afraid I have only ever used my particular machine, so I can't give you any real comparative advice!

    Sounds likes your serger desperately needs oil! I never used to oil mine much, but it hummmms much better when it drinks lots of oil.

    Enjoyed your video. I started out making garments. Now I’m into quilting. But I enjoyed watching you today. I have always gotten a lot of satisfaction from the process of cutting and then producing a garment. Thanks!

    You are adorable! Love this video...tripped across your channel when it was up next on the side queue list. You are very gracious responding to the advice folks are giving you [which seem to be from older folks....I'm an older gal but don't do much advice giving lol]. Anyway, love the color and the pattern - you make it look easy so I shall try back will hurt too after two hours! Thank you for sharing!

    Putting wheels on it is such a great idea. I think I may need to do that soon!

  23. Pamela Gahan

    Pamela GahanTahun Yang lalu

    Thank you. That was great. I think when parents make good use of the time they have when bub is asleep is great. I use to do all my sewing / craft when the children were asleep at night when I could enjoy the peace and quiet. Only thing was I would go to bed too late because I cherished the time alone so much and being creative that I didn't want the night to end. I would only stop when things were blurry so I had to stop. Doing it during the day like you did makes more sense. You are a good teacher by the way. Thank you. Pamela from Tasmania Australia

    For your future reference Jalie patterns has a IDreporter video on fast easy way to unpick overlock stitches... I am still just a sewing machine girl, went with an upgraded machine and haven’t looked back... even knits are easy on my machine... well and a walking foot too often:) love your channel

    Fits you perfectly, what size did you make. Did you go by the bust or hip measurements to pick your sizes.

  36. Threadquarters

    I made a large, which matched both my bust and hip measurements (surprisingly!!!).

  37. Adecia Walker

    Adecia WalkerTahun Yang lalu

    Just wondering what pattern you used for the top you are wearing in this video. It is just what I would like. Also, i have become quite addicted to your videos, trying to catch up on all of them! LOL!

  38. Threadquarters

    ThreadquartersTahun Yang lalu

    Oh thank you, I'm so glad you are enjoying my videos! I'm afraid the top I'm wearing in my video is bought...I didn't make it! But it's a very simple shape. I think you could make it from the Grainline Hemlock tee (a free PDF pattern, just google it and it will come up) and then add width to the neckband (like about 20cm, doubled over). Hope that helps!

    ThreadquartersTahun Yang lalu

    Sorry I'm only replying now. Did you get it sorted out? As far as I'm aware its only in digital format which means you should have got a link to download it straight away. If you didn't then I think you should email Helen and I'm sure she will be able to help you out!

    Happy that YT suggested this video, it was so fun to watch and recall past days when I tried to sew when my littles were napping. Looking forward to getting to know your channel and hopefully be inspired to get my mother's old Bernina serger un-jammed and ready to sew again. (That machine makes me very stabby!) 2018 should be a good year to get sewing garments again. Happy New Year!

    Great video. I’m a quilter and would like to start making clothing. I have to say I am a bit intimidated by it though. I’m a self taught quilter so I will be a self taught garment maker as well I’m sure unless I sign up for some classes. I don’t know why but, garment making scares me lol

  58. Threadquarters

    ThreadquartersTahun Yang lalu

    Oh don't be nervous. Even if you make a mistake or you don't like what you have made, you have still learnt something. I'm sure you have already, but do check out Tilly and The Buttons. Her blog and book is geared towards people starting on their garment sewing journey so there are lots of easy projects and tutorials to follow. Best of luck! Its very addictive! xxx

    Great video. Thanks. In future, I'd like to see information on how you got such a good fit, more specifics on selecting the fabric, and a little more on how a serger works. I'd like to sew with knits and lack confidence.

  62. Threadquarters

    ThreadquartersTahun Yang lalu

    Thanks for the feedback. This video wasn't intended to be a proper tutorial so I din't go into a lot of details like that. But since its been so popular I'll definitely be making more and will try to include issues that you mention (although, I wouldn't be able to go into THAT much detail!!!!! all of those topics would take several videos to cover properly!)

  73. Threadquarters

    ThreadquartersTahun Yang lalu

    I tend to have my dials set to either 4 or 5 for most projects, but it really does depend on the fabric. I always do a few tests when I'm starting on a new fabric and tweak the dials until I'm happy with the stitches.

  74. Tamyco Metcalf

    Tamyco MetcalfTahun Yang lalu

    what kind of cutting table is that? i love it i have a craft table and i need a better table will you please share

  75. Threadquarters

    ThreadquartersTahun Yang lalu

    Its from Ikea. Its really handy for being able to store away, but do note its a bit short for a proper cutting table (not good for the back!!!), so some people have put casters on the legs to raise it up a bit. It's this table here: You can see a bit more of it in my Sewing Room Tour video
